    I remember someone posted a tip on how to dismiss a notification banner on top. Can't find the thread anywhere. Usually the banner sticks for 7 seconds then goes away. There have been quite a few instances when I'm about to tap on an icon or a button on top while the very notification banner appears, thus making it very annoying even for some mere 7 seconds.

    So far, I've tried sliding across the banner all the way up. But instead of getting rid of it, the gesture registers as a tap and takes me straight to the corresponding app. What else could I possibly do to dismiss the damn thing? :eek:

    Thank you in advance.

    Is this what you were looking for?

    P.S. I haven't tried this myself. Hope it helps/works though!

    That's it! Thanks a lot. :)

    By the way, who else finds it awkward swiping from right to left vs. left to right? Left to right feels just more natural, no?

    I do find it a little awkward to swipe from right to left. It would be more natural to just flick upward to dismiss the notification.
